New SAI "Climate Lens" podcast episode

SAI podcast 03 cover

In the third episode of SAI's "Climate Lens" podcast, Julia Wiraeus talks to three experts on South Asia's water crisis and the way forward.

South Asia is suffering from drought, floods and polluted water bodies. Rivers have dried out and cyclones are coming more and more often. Thousands, if not millions of people, will see their homes disappear with rising water levels in the coming decades. What’s the way forward?

For the South Asia Initiative's special podcast series on climate issues in the South Asian region, journalist Julia Wiraeus talked to Henrik Chetan Aspengren, acting head for the Asia program at the Swedish Institute of International Affairs, Phu Doma Lama researcher at the Division of Risk Management and Society Safety at Lund University and affiliated to SASNET, and Aditi Mukherji from the International Water Management Institute in New Delhi.
